It appears we both need out copy of GEB. Anyway you are right that assuming that the sentence is false does not lead to a contradiction, but that was never the issue, it is the undecidability that is the issue and that remains, for both assumptions.

I just wanted to share the train of thoughts that wind-magic's story about DNA inspired in me. Namely the tendency many people have to wander about questions that cannot be solved. Now is that a property of the world or a property of our logic?

Use your head, ram the wall till it falls.

this discussion is the kind that persuade a lot of Philosophers that they really were (!!!!) in favor of Quantum Mechanics all along.

It's not that a statement is TRUE - or that a statement that it is False... It is JUST that you have made the decision to limit the choices to those two items - and therefore exclude other possibilities.

Clearly, were I to be asked about my wife's current new "hair color", I would opt to quickly come up with another solution to this kind of question...

With good insulation on the frig. I could shut it off at night & still have frozen cubes in the morning! By rigging solar panels to have sun at nearly 90 degrees to incident sun you can "squeeze" 15-18% more amps in early/late parts of the day. The FourWinds didn't help as much as I'd hoped but every little bit helps.

Ahh - yes. It's always both true and false. Verschränkung...that crazy cat of Schrödinger's.
